This hotel was everything I expected and I was totally pleased with my stay here. We paid $52 U.S a night (not inc tax). Very cheap for the heart of SF. Yes the rooms were small, however I did not travel all the way to San Fran to be in my room the whole time. We had two large suitcases and managed fine! The facilities in the room were up to scratch, it was clean and tidy. But yes again, the sink was in a compact corner, and the bathroom was quite small. However this did no affect us at all. We were very very happy with the location, you are in the heart of Union Square, and the St.Francis Westin a large 5 star hotel is literally across the road!! The telephone in the room was unavailable and was being serviced however the man at the front desk gave me a $5 phonecard and let me use the cordless phone downstairs whenever I liked which was super nice of him. If I was to have any complaints, it would be that the bed was a little too hard for my liking, and the street noise. Yes there is street noise, and yes you can hear it, so if you are a light sleeper ask for a room off Geary Street. I would recommend this hotel to my friends and would stay here again, as it is an ideal spot for anyone on a budget looking for a clean and cosy room in downtown SF.
